  • I can tell you with almost absolute certainty that it's your sciatic nerve! I'm 26 weeks and mine hurts almost everyday. Sometimes it totally deabilitating! I'm sorry, I feel your pain.

  • sounds like your sciatic nerve i feel your pain im 25weeks and going through the same thing. if your lucky baby will move and that will help. Mine doesnt hurt every day thank god but every once in a while when baby moves and sits there it hurts like Hell.

  • I'm on my fourth baby and I started feeling it with my first baby around 15 weeks or so and its HORRIBLE sometimes it hurts so bad in later pregnancy you cannot move!!! I have a bone chip in my lower back but yes its all connected with your sciatic nerve and yep the only thing that will cure it is delivering your baby!!!! its immediately like AHHHHHHHHHHH.... but sometimes mine gets a little ouchy again when im about to start each month but month but nothing at all like when I'm pregnant!!!

  • I would suggest that you see a chiropractor. It can help so much!!! I see one every other week.

  • The sciatic nerve is a pain that will happen occassionally. It will come and go. It will most likely go away with the pregnancy, and actually may be gone in an hour or tomorrow! It has a habit of showing up during pregnancy and it may be because of the baby's positioning. Good luck.
